The events of that small-town summer forever alter David Hayden's view of his family: his self-effacing father, a sheriff who never wears his badge; his clear sighted mother; his uncle, a charming war hero and respected doctor; and the Hayden's lively, statuesque Sioux housekeeper, Marie Little Soldier, whose revelations are at the heart of the story. It is a tale of love and courage, of power abused, and of the terrible choice between family loyalty and justice.

When we first meet David Hayden he is a grown man, but the person we come to know is a much younger David. Looking for truth and considering the world to be black and white, young David is shocked at finding the skeletons of abuse and racism that are a part of his family. His father, the local sheriff, must make some hard decisions regarding family loyalty and justice. In the end, the harsh light of reality reveals a secret strength that David never knew he or his family had. This award winning novel tells a story in a manner that matches the landscape of Montana; full of small gullies and everything is not as exposed as you might think.
